eboatworks.com for bottom paint?

just curious if anyone has ordered anything from EBoatWorks | and if they a reputable or not, did a quick web search but didnt find any first had accounts with people buying from them. They have the bottom paint I want for the lowest price I can find it anywhere with free shipping, smells a little fishy, but I'm willing to ask the community!

They are listed on the Blue Water Paints site as a accredited dealer...
Cheers,


Jon

Why do you want to use Blue Water? And which product are you thinking of?

I was thinking the SRX 67 hard... Any experience with it? It got good rating from practical sailor and I was thinking of giving it a try.

No experience with it. That's why I asked. Nobody uses it here. Don't be the guinea pig; is my advice.

Re: eboatworks.com for bottom paint?

Fisheries up here in seattle carry it, practical sailor usually is pretty reliable source so far for me... being more than half the cost of trinidad seems like a good option. My current ablative on our new to us hans christian is practically non existent so we will have to make a decision soon. Looking to haul in a few weeks. If we do end up going this route Ill touch back with impressions.

Re: eboatworks.com for bottom paint?

The fouling conditions in the PNW are pretty tame compared to the Bay Area (where I assume your boat is) and anti fouling paints that work well there may not here. Further, I put little stock in Practical Sailor reviews of bottom paint. Not worth the paper they're printed on, IMHO. In any event, if your boat does live here in the Bay Area, the advice of this hull cleaner with 19 years experience in the biz; is to stick with the tried-and-true. Go off on a flyer at your own peril.

Now you can't say you haven't been warned.

Re: eboatworks.com for bottom paint?

We have been using Blue Water Paint bottom paint for the past two years with excellent results. It isn't the version you are considering, but thought I would post that at least SOME of their paint works as well as their competition.
